Hey agents! I love that I get to edit books across all age groups, but I'd love to see more middle grade in my inbox! Fantasy, contemporary, and everything in between is cool, but I have a soft spot for the laugh-out-loud variety :)
My full #mswl is here:

I weep over female friendship in YA. WEEP. There can never be too much of this. #mswl

Now feels like a good time to mention that I am very interested in your messy and complicated villains and also characters who seem like the villain but are actually *coughs* the love interest #MSWL

My full #mswl is linked below, but some highlights include
-lush YA fantasy
-quirky MG (mis)adventure
-first year of college YA
-unreliable narrator

I can't deny that fall is coming because I just added ghosts to my #mswl (in addition to romps, romance, and dark fantasy). 'Tis the season!

For the record, I am ALWAYS here for a good romantic subplot, especially in fantasy. #MSWL

Nicole Fiorica @NicoleFios · 7 Jun 2019

Someone please send me a quirky and/or whimsical middle grade fantasy that’s all I want in this world thank you #mswl

Today seems like a good time to mention that I would love to see more books about space, whether fiction or nonfiction #MSWL

Hey agents! I updated my #MSWL for the New Year - I'm accepting YA, MG, and PB, looking for character-driven SF/F and contemporary stories. I'd love to hear from you, hop on the phone, or grab coffee sometime!
